For all of us, the Indonesian citizens, August 17 is a very special day. This day was full of wisdom. Indonesian independence memorial service was held simultaneously from Sabang to Merauke in order to celebrate Indonesia Independence Day. All lined up and bowed their heads together, remembering the merits of the heroes accompanied by a moment of silence. The main part that always makes the most goosebumps of any Indonesian independence ceremony is when the red and white flag is pulled up while the Indonesia Raya song is sung by the choir and all the participants of the ceremony. Goosebumps, the feeling of being shaken doesn’t only affect those who participate in the ceremony, people around you will also get goosebumps.

Even so, the commemoration of Indonesia’s independence day is not merely sad. As a child, these independence day carnivals and competitions must be something that you’ve always been waiting for. Well, competitions and carnivals which is usually held in villages and
housing estates that make Indonesian independence a memory that has enough imprint each year. It does not only makes you happy because of the laughter you shared with each other, it can also strengthen your relationship with friends. You mingle in one place, not to mention if you take part in the race of the competition, of course you must set a strategy that makes you communicatie to each other. Can you imagine if there were no events like this, how often do you socialize intensely with your neighbors? By the way, this celebration is not only happened in the neighborhood, but also at works.

Speaking of which, Metamorphosys also held competition to celebrate the independence day! There are various kinds of competitions, such as marbles relay, rubber relay, blowing candles with the nose, and many more. Metamates was very happy and enthusiastic about following the competitions. Anyway, you have to be a champion so you can get a snack
prize! Haha. After the competition, we have dinner together while chatting to discuss many things, from the serious ones to the unimportant ones. The goal is to make the bond between Metamates stronger and our team more solid. Happy Birthday Indonesia! Thank you for being our shelter for life. Hopefully Indonesia will always be better every day. Hopefully we can always understand the meaning of Indonesia’s independence and help grow into a better person for Indonesia too.

Di seluruh belahan Indonesia, 17 Agustus menjadi hari yang penuh hikmat. Upacara peringatan kemerdekaan Indonesia digelar bersamaan dari Sabang hingga Merauke. Semua berbaris dan menundukkan kepala bersama, mengenang jasa pahlawan diiringi lantunan Mengheningkan Cipta. Bagian utama yang selalu bikin paling merinding dari setiap upacara peringatan kemerdekaan Indonesia adalah saat bendera merah putih ditarik naik sembari lagu Indonesia Raya dinyanyikan oleh paduan suara dan seluruh peserta upacara. Merinding, rasa harunya nggak hanya menghinggapi mereka yang menjadi peserta upacara, orang sekitarpun pasti ikutan merinding.

Meskipun begitu, peringatan hari kemerdekaan Indonesia nggak melulu isinya sendu dan bersedih. Waktu kecil, lomba dan karnaval keliling komplek pasti jadi sesuatu yang selalu kamu tunggu-tunggu banget kan dari momen 17 Agustusan? Nah, lomba, karnaval, bahkan sampai panggung gembira yang biasa digelar di kampung-kampung dan perumahan ini yang bikin kemerdekaan Indonesia jadi memori yang cukup membekas di tiap tahunnya. Senengnya, acara itu nggak cuma bikin kamu happy karena ketawa-ketawa, tapi juga bisa mempererat hubungan kamu sama temen-temen dan warga sekitar. Kalian membaur dalam satu tempat, belum lagi kalau ikutan lomba, udah pasti mesti atur strategi yang bikin kalian jadi komunikasi. Kebayang gak sih, kalau nggak ada acara seperti ini, seberapa sering kalian bersosialisasi intens sama tetangga kanan kiri? Nggak cuma di rumah, tapi juga di sekolah, kampus, dan bahkan di kantor.

Ngomong-ngomong perayaan kemerdekaan Indonesia di kantor, Metamorphosys juga ngadain loh! Karena 17 Agustus tahun ini jatuh di hari Minggu, jadi lombanya kita adakan di hari kerja alias weekday. Ada macam-macam lomba, seperti estafet kelereng, estafet karet, tiup lilin dengan hidung, dan masih banyak lagi. Metamates antusias dan semangat banget mengikuti lomba-lombanya. Pokoknya harus jadi juara biar dapet hadiah snack! Hihihi. Selesai lomba, kita ngumpul dan makan malam bareng sambil ngobrol untuk membahas banyak hal, mulai dari yang serius sampai yang nggak penting. Tujuannya biar bonding antar Metamates makin kuat dan tim kita juga makin solid. Selamat Ulang Tahun Indonesia! Terimakasih sudah jadi tempat kami bernaung selama hidup. Semoga Indonesia akan selalu lebih baik setiap harinya. Semoga kita selalu bisa memahami arti kemerdekaan Indonesia dan ikut tumbuh menjadi pribadi yang lebih baik juga untuk Indonesia.
